The Return of Classic Wedding Details
If you’re not feeling all the bohemian and rustic weddings these days, don’t worry — a return of the classic wedding details is happening. While boho and rustic are great if that’s your style, many brides are looking for timeless elegance and chic details that only a classic wedding can provide. Here are a few ways to bring back the classic wedding.
Timeless & Classic Wedding Details
1. Keep the florals white. Nothing is more classic wedding than all-white florals! If you want to add a bit of color, try doing all white bouquets to keep things classic and fresh, but add you some color in your centerpieces or decor arrangements. Or just add some fresh greenery to your white florals to really make the white pop while keeping the look clean and classic.
2. Wear a more traditional bridal look. Nothing says classic bride like a beautiful white gown and an elegant long veil. Go for lace or try one of the elegant long-sleeved wedding dresses that are everywhere right now. Keep your accessories simple and pull your hair into a chignon or elegant french twist.
3. Keep the floral crowns on the flower girls. I love floral crowns as much as the next girl, but if you want your wedding to look timeless, that is a look best suited for your flower girl.
4. Bring back the traditional wedding cake. A multi-tier white cake with simple embellishments and a sweet traditional topper is perfect for a classic wedding. Get adventurous with the flavors inside instead!
5. Keep the guys well-suited. A nice tailored suit (with jacket!), a tie, or a tux are the ways to do classic menswear. A simple white floral boutonnière is the perfect finishing touch.
6. Have a more uniform bridal party. While your bridesmaids certainly don’t have to be wearing the same exact dress, having them wear the same color and similarly-styled dresses will look more classic. Hair, shoes, and accessories can vary and still be classic and elegant.
7. Think calligraphy and elegant paper goods. Nothing is more elegant to me than calligraphy and crisp white paper goods. Keep your fonts, signs, paper choices, and stationery suite in mind when planning your classic wedding — it sets the tone for what’s to come.
